Lacie Xtremkey

Perhaps you’ve got a covert op to run and the last thing you want to happen is for those spy docs to get lost in a tumble down a flight of stairs, a dip in the arctic ocean or a drop from a 3 story building.  Fear not for the Lacie XtremKey is hear to save the day.

The drive comes in variety of capacities ranging from 8GB to 64GB.  It can survive almost any environment (+200°C / -50°) thanks to the highly resistant 2mm metal pipe casing, which is crafted of zamac, a metal alloy composed of zinc, aluminum, magnesium and copperwear.  The case itself features resistant screw threads and a rubber O-ring, making it watertight up to 100 meters. Add to that it can survive drops up to 5 meters and this thing can survive just about anything you throw at it, including a 10-ton truck. Don’t be fooled by it’s big stats, the XtremKey is just 3-inches tall and can achieve write speeds up to 30 Mb/s.

So when is it available? Sometime in August starting at $50.
